Following its scheduled period in dry dock from October 29
to November 10, 2017, at the Chantier Naval shipyard in Marseille, AIDAblu now
has even more attractive onboard features.
One of the exclusive highlights aboard AIDAblu is the new
ice cream bar by Langnese Happiness Station that makes it possible to enjoy
this ice cream aboard a cruise ship for the very first time. In future guests
will be able to compose their favorite ice cream themselves, choosing from
countless delicious ingredients. Apart from the popular Swirl, scoops from the
Carte D'Or brand, and a soft-serve variety for our youngest guests are also
available as are select specialty coffees.
Those who love jewelry, watches and home accessories will
now find an even bigger range aboard AIDAblu. On the new promenade on Deck 9,
the store concept has been modernized and now has an even more open and
friendly look. The attractive range of products in the categories of jewelry
and watches, perfume and cosmetics, fashion and accessories, living and gift,
kids, and the AIDA World make this the perfect place to go for a leisurely
browse. This is where guests will be able to find vacation souvenirs, their new
favorite items, and gift ideas for their loved ones at home such as the items
designed exclusively in partnership with Meissen Porcelain.
The sports area on Deck 11 has also had a makeover. The
machine area has been completely fitted out with new life-fitness cardio
equipment and new Tomahawk indoor cycling bikes. The view of the sea will
double our guests' pleasure in a workout. Metabolic testing and body analyses
by Cardioscan for an optimum training program will also be possible on board
AIDAblu in future.
Apart from regular class and maintenance work, AIDAblu is
now the seventh ship in the AIDA fleet to be fitted with an exhaust treatment
system. Known as a "scrubber," this system virtually eliminates sulfur dioxide
Cosmetic repairs and refurbishments, such as the replacement
of 3,000 sqm of carpeting, have also been effected on board on the basis of more
than 30 different projects.
AIDAblu is currently on her way from Palma de Mallorca to
Tenerife from where the cruise ship will be traveling to Madeira and the Canary
Islands during the winter season. More information about the Canary Islands
cruises and bookings is available at travel agencies, at www.aida.de or by
